Mark: Hey, folks let’s learn something new about the oil and gas industry.

All right. Today, we’re in beautiful Magnolia, Texas and I am in a part of Magnolia, Texas I didn’t even know existed. And, Chris, we’re actually in your house today, aren’t we?

Chris: We are. We sure are. We’re in High Meadow Ranch.

Mark: High Meadow Ranch. It’s beautiful out here. We actually saw a deer in the middle of the day walking down the side of the road.

Chris: Yeah. They’re all over the place. Wait ‘til night, they really come out.

Mark: Oh, I bet. And, we’re not just sitting here with Chris, we’re actually sitting here with Wendy.

How are you doing, Wendy?

Wendy: I’m doing great. Thank you.

Mark: Yeah. Y’all have something really exciting going on. Now, if you’ve watched this for any length of time you pay attention to the podcast, you know I have a love affair for the intersection of oil and gas and technology. And y’all are actually kicking off your first inaugural event, aren’t you?

Chris: We are. Yeah, on June 28thwe’re having our first event IDT Expo and we’ll bring in together technology companies, operators – oil and gas operators, and then investors.

Wendy: Yeah. And so, if you’re in that world, if you want to see what that looks like, if you want to do something that’s new that’s refreshing, you need to come to this. And, I don’t care if you’re on the upstream side of the house, the midstream side of the house, downstream side of the house, you need to understand what’s going on in the investing world and with technology because this technology revolution is coming out of our industry like a freight train, we can’t stop it, but it’s great.

Now, Wendy, I’ve got a question for you. This is your first time that you’re doing this, so you’re a little worried about all the pieces coming together at the same time?

Wendy: Well, this is the first time we’re doing the IDT Expo. Chris and I had actually done these sorts of events in our previous career, so I’m not a newbie to this one, but this is bigger and better than we’ve ever done. So, that’s the exciting part and we’re reaching out to a wider audience now

Mark: Yeah. And so, y’all are going to have operators, technology vendors, and investment folks all in the same place at the same time?

Wendy: That is correct. Yes. And we will be hosting technology companies who are the prime sponsors of our event. So, it’s  a great opportunity for the operators and the investors to come to meet up with the technology companies to find out what they’re working on, what’s happening in their world and the whole idea is to connect them bring them all together to start the conversation.

Mark: Yeah. And this is awesome. And let me tell you, you know what makes this really awesome?  You would easily pay a thousand, fifteen hundred, two thousand dollars to this. Chris, how much is it again?

Chris: Zero.

Mark: You heard that right. Zero. We’re going to be there as press. If you come, reach out to us, hit us up on Twitter, we’d love to chat with you. I can’t wait to see this thing get kickoff. Go. We’re going to put a link in the show notes.

Chris, if people want to learn more, where should they go?

Chris: They go to www.idtexpo.com.

Mark: Yeah. We’ll put a link in the show notes. Like I said you go click up, go sign up now because it’s going to fill up fast.

Wendy, are you still looking for any sponsors?

Wendy: Yes, we are. We do have positions that are still available. If you are interested in participating with this, again, go to our website, IDTExpo.com. You can connect with me there and I’ll be more than glad to give you the information needed to be a part of what’s happening.

Mark: Go sponsor now. This is going to be awesome.

Chris, Wendy, thank you so much for your time today.

Chris: Okay. Thanks a lot, John, I appreciate it.

Mark: Yeah, except it’s Mark.

Wendy: Mark.

Mark: Folks, I hope this helped. We will see you next time.
